What do you like best?

The upsides are few. The only real one I can think of is it is decent in speed on mobile not anywhere near the lightning speeds they tout but it's ok. We have solved our checkout process that at least works properly on the platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Pretty much everything. Let's start with theming. The two main themes were created by people who either have never visited an ecommerce store before or they simply want to ensure that they can recharge the clients every time they implement very very very basic functionality. These include:

1. No zoom on images

2. Images don't load by SSR

3. SCHEMA set up is missing a lot of information

4. Meta Descriptions and Titles need to be manually fixed all the time.

5. Filters on category pages don't work properly they need to be cusotmized (To use OR between options in the filter and AND between filters)

6. Out of stock management needs major customization.

7. Load times are not great and your Google Page Speed Insights score without heavy customization will be very low on mobile.

8. Almost no payment gateways work out of the box.

And the list goes on and on. It is not user friendly unless you are a seasoned VueJs developer and the community so far is very much a proprietary one where there is no marketplace for modules and very very few decent repositories that work OOTB. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend considering building a custom PWA using Magento PWA Studio or looking into React Storefront perhaps. There just really isn't a lot that is prebuilt and almost everything is custom from the bolts up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had an M2 Store that was not doing well and was performing poorly on mobile and in general and we thought that a PWA would solve a lot of our issues such as bounce rates etc. We have realized no benefits whatsoever so far. In fact the current thinking is to go back either to M2 or look at PWA platforms that are more conveniently structured. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How the customer facing facade was develop, a super case for a network venture. Without a doubt I additionally like that vue was choosen as a structure. The approche vue retail facade takes, making a committed customer facing facade, is futureproof. As of now I just know from spryker that they have a switchable customer facing facade. With vue customer facing facade you can put essentially every internet business framework out of sight. This is awesome.This is an incredibly dynamic task that is attempting to institutionalize and push forward the PWA answer for online business. The vitality and enthusiasm is actually what this development needs, and will be a major player in the coming a long time as the entire web move to PWA. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I detest is a few points of confinement about conceivable functionalities - current generation stores are straightforward and need od some critical functionalities for generally stores. This will changed when this item will grow up obviously. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In the event that you need to manufacture an onlineshop and have room schedule-wise to do it appropriate I would prescribe to utilize vue customer facing facade ver everything at the present time. Be that as it may, as each Framework, assess cautiously and don't utilize it since you simply like or in light of the fact that it's cool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For the most part the execution of eCommerce stores and modifying the web for the portable clients. I use Vue Storefront as a front for Magento shops. It is a lot simpler to work with, contrasted with Magento frontend.I am utilizing it in my customers venture for multi merchant store. I work with the front end and we are utilizing Magento 2 to deal with the store. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Vue storefront is a perfect solution that you can use as PWA base for any e-commerce store. It is still in the very early beta stage, but it is much better to start a project if you have something instead of zero. The community is very active, and even if you start the project without knowledge in VueStorefront, they will help you. VueStorefront is offering training, and if needed white label developers who will involve and lead this project to success. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Well, there are not many things I dislike, new versions could come out faster, but I know how hard it is when versions mostly are based on community. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is perfect as a base, but you can not rely on everything that it will work perfectly without modifications and improvements. However, you are able to contribute original code. Meaning your fixes will be included in the latest version, and even with your core updates (if you will follow standards), you will be compatible for updates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For Magento community edition this is a perfect base for PWA, as there are no alternatives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How the storefront was build up, a super example for a community project. For sure I also like that vue was choosen as a framework. The approche vue storefront takes, making a dedicated storefront, is futureproof. Currently I only know from spryker that they have a switchable storefront. With vue storefront you can put basically every ecommerce system in the background. This is awesome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Currently I can not tell about this. We yet only experimented with the vue storefront and for me, I found no real problem until now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to build an onlineshop and have the time to do it proper I would recommend to use vue storefront ver everything right now. But as every Framework, evaluate carefully and don't use it because you just like or or because it's cool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we develop E-Commerce systems with known brand frameworks. vue storefronts adds the possibility to have a dedicated storefront while switching the Systems behind. This brings a lot of compatibility between software versions or even between different systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Best of all is that it's backend independent so for sure works on Magento which I'm currently using but will also work for other applications. For companies that provide eCommerce solutions it's also important that allows completely separate backend from frontend. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Fast eCommerce solutions, availability when Internet is poor or completely not available (offline shopping). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Speed of navigation is a new discovery for ecommerce.

The possibility of navigating in the metro for example is a real plus. We can now prepare our purchases during our time off in transpoxxrt for example.

No more native applications, we have a web application available which is updated without any action.

View StoreFront offers advantages over the Magento PWA for exemple:

- Resilience (Thanks to ElasticSearch)

- Possibility to change backend without changing Frontend. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- The number of missing features such as catalog rules or basket rules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

- to reduce hosting cost.
